The Little Black Box XBMC STB Gets Users’ Feedback, Becomes Available on Amazon

Orange Pi Development Boards

The Little Black Black Box (TLBB) is an set-top box running XBMC powered by AMLogic AML8726-M3 with 1GB RAM, 4GB Flash that comes with a dual sided RF remote control. The device became available for pre-order in April, and the first customers have started to receive the media player, one of them (flipfoelyfe) has uploaded a video, and posted some pictures.

After initial issues setting up Wi-Fi (A bug seems to prevent the use of long passwords), his tweets about the device are rather positive, and he uploaded a short video demo showing Sports-a-Holic plugin playing a live NBA match, and a ESPN Boxing program.

Whereas you had to pre-order and be patient for the first batch, LTBB is now available on Amazon for $129.99. Considering it also includes a dual sided RF remote control with a QWERTY keyboard, this single core set-top box is about the same price, or even a few dollars more, than Android dual core media players running XBMC such as G-Box Midnight MX2 or Tronsmart Prometheus. But if you’re looking for a device that runs exclusively XBMC, this may be the only media player that ships with the Linux version by default.
